On Sunday, “Kuraś” added 31 points. This time, however, the team won against a strong rival, stopping the Panthers' great winning streak.

Let us add that Panasonic's volleyball players are still the leaders in the league table, with as many as 77 points. The runners-up are Suntory Sunbirds (66), and the “Kuraś” team is third on the podium with 61 points.
